Update on Endangered Wolf Center, Eureka, Missouri
About 10 years ago I wrote about our experiences at the really interesting Endangered Wolf Center, not far outside the city of St Louis.
Take a look here:
Well, I’m happy to give an update on the center, which continues to do wonderful conservation work and which deserves our support. If you are ever in the St Louis area, do take a bit of time to visit the Center, as it’s a great example of Animal Conservation at work.
Thanks to Cheryl Hughey of the Endangered Wolf Center, who sent me a copy of the newest press release.
The Endangered Wolf Center is starting its annual fundraiser and has decided to use Apache, a Mexican gray wolf, to serve as their “spokesperson” for their annual campaign. This might seem unusual, but actually this creative move supports their animal-centered approach.
As the press release states, “Apache was born on May 2, 1998 to Cheech and Juanita at the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Mo. As the elder statesman of the Center, Apache is a living tribute to the successful reintroduction of Mexican gray wolves to North America.
There are only 75 Mexican gray wolves remaining in the wild. This wolf is the most endangered mammal in North America and the Center has been making great strides reintroducing them back into the wilderness. Every Mexican gray wolf in the wild can trace its lineage back to the Endangered Wolf Center,” said Regina Mossotti, Director of Animal Care and Conservation.
